Gamer's Vision team on Hori blog

I just got this from MarkMan's Twitter, it's quite old though. Soushihan KSK, Tokido, Mago, and Kami-chan were on Hori's blog talking about Hori sticks and a bit about Mad Catz.

(Kami-chan's main game is BlazBlue, and was an MC in many events. You can always find him at Gamer's Vision)

KSK and Tokido both lean toward MadCatz because of the look. It's clearly Tokido prefers Mad Catz because he specifically asked for Mad Catz's TE stick in the BlazBlue's final.

In the Ura Kao TV, KSK both list Hori RAP EX PREMIUM VLX and Mad Catz Chun-li stick as the controllers they're using. The sticks were given as a gift. But we only see Hori one on the screen. I'm not sure why, but it must be one of these.

1) Chun-Li stick is limited, while Hori one isn't. (They want to keep it in a mint condition.)
2) Hori is paying KSK. (LOL)

Hori representative was at Nagoya Street Battle 17 promoting their sticks with the help of KSK, too.

Hori don't have Daigo Umehara but they're trying to gain momentum in Japan. They sponsored the RAP VX SA to GODSGARDEN 2.5. When KayoPolice asked for a stick in Game no Jikan show, they gave a RAP VLX to the show, too.

Anyway, many Japanese players don't like RAP VLX due to the size or the price or both. I even saw some people renamed Hori to Mr. "30,000 yen controller." (For reference, Mad Catz TE S is 16,800 yen.)
